Registration for 2016 Annual Meeting in San Francisco is open!

Join us as we continue to offer great programming and opportunities for information-sharing with colleagues from around the country.

You may register for NCBF online through the ABA's portal. Please review these instructions and refer to them during registration:

  • Search for the registrant's ABA record by ABA ID, E-mail, or Name. If a record is not found (or does not exist), you may still register by clicking "start a new registration".
  • Be sure to use the "NABE/NCBP/NCBF or IOLTA" registration option.
  • Continue through the prompts to pick a package, optional event tickets and guest tickets, until registration is complete.
  • Upon completion, you will be prompted to reserve housing in the ABA hotel block, if desired. Please note the 'host hotel' listed on this portal is the ABA host hotel, not the NCBF host hotel. The NABE/NCBP/NCBF host hotel is the Hilton Union Square.
